Dr. David Samadi, an international acclaimed urologist and researcher, known for his expertise for treating prostate cancer, and several other urological diseases, he’s recognized as one of the most experienced and innovative board-certified physicians.
Aside from his extensive experience, conducting minimally invasive treatments, Dr. Samadi has also introduced recent techniques, including the SMART (Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique) technique for prostate removal. He has also been a moderator for a radio program, a TV show, “Sunday Housecall,” and is a regular medical contributor to Fox News.
According to Dr. David Samadi, the SMART technique maintains sexual function and urinary continence in 80 to 95 percent of cases, and he’s performed over 6,000 operations. The operation lasts about 1.5 hours, with minimal blood loss, and within 24 hours, and only requires an overnight hospital stay. Dr. Samadi has modified the original robotic surgery, which was called Radical Prostatectomy. Doctors always tried to spare the nerves important for erections and bypass any urinary incontinence, however, there were always uncertainties. Dr. Samaid’s newer techniques protects nerve bundles, increasing the rate of success for this type of surgical procedure.
While the focus has spotlighted this robotic surgery, Dr. Samadi says that although the robotic element is important, ultimately the surgeon executes a successful procedure. To prevent prostate cancer, he also points out how diet plays a very important role. Experts encourage people to eat tomatoes, watermelon and other foods that have lycopene. These antioxidants, seem to has a positive influence on diminishing the numbers of prostate cancer. Doctor Samadi also recommends knowing family history and this is extremely relevant, because we know that prostate cancer has a genetic load
